Here at HWBOT we try our best to deliver a fair and enjoyable playing field for all those who participate in the rankings and competition. To be able to provide this kind of service we have tried to design some submission and general rules to help remove any doubts about whether something is allowed or not. Based on continued experience these rules will be updated, expanded and completed as time goes by. Please check back for any updates.
It has been a long wait for the Team Cup fanatics, but it's finally here! The HWBOT Team Cup 2014 continues the tradition of the Team Cup series featuring a challenging series of benchmarks to be run with a wide variety of hardware. Just like the previous years, the Team Cup is split up in separate competitions. This year we have four: a CPU challenge, a GPU challenge, a Memory challenge and a Miscellaneous challenge.
Below you can find an overview of the benchmark and hardware limitations in the four sub competitions.
The timeframe is the same for each of the sub-competitions. We start on June 1st 12PM GMT+0 and wrap things up on September 30th 12PM GMT+0. Over the course of the four months you can submit to any of the stages in the four sub-competitions and gather points for your team. On September 23 12PM GMT+0, seven days before the end of the competition, an elimination takes place and only the five best teams will be allowed to continue submitting until the very end.
Will Madshrimps from Belgium dominate the Team Cup again, or is Overclock.net out for revenge? Amongst the favorites we must definitely include the HwBox team from Greece as they dominated all the warm-up rounds. Or maybe this year we'll see an outsider capture the gold. Let's wait and see!
Good luck to everyone!
